We have company coming in 3 days, so you would think that I would be using my time wisely,
but I finished the crocheted edge on my embroidered Christmas table runner last night
and I wanted to see how it will look on the table.
That got me thinking about the Christmas Link Party I am joining at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson and I headed to the cupboard to dig out all of the Christmas decorations I have bought so far this year.
I should have been cleaning, but instead I played with my decorations and took pictures.
When I looked in the garden for greenery, I was surprised to find that the asparagus fern not only had little white flowers, but also red berries - how have I missed that each year?
I gathered together all the new gift wrapping items I have purchased
and found the mercury glass ornaments I bought months ago.
A few tin hearts and a wicker heart are new this year and those hearts gave me an idea.
I goofed up when stamping bags for my future daughter-in-law's "Girls' Weekend" - they were filled with yummy salt water taffy.
I added hearts to two of them and you can't even tell the bags were rejects.
I am looking forward to decorating for Christmas on Friday,
but the rest of this week, I need to be busy preparing for Thanksgiving.
The new flatware I ordered arrived today, but I didn't finish embroidering all the napkins.
So although I should finish cleaning tomorrow, it looks like I will be playing again - this time with plates and napkins until I come up with the right table setting.
